Wifi Installation?

Message 1 of 2 (4,709 Views)

I might be doing something wrong here, maybe someone can help.


I go to


Installed the ActiveX using Firefox, click on restart button on fire fox


The Wifi activation window comes up and ask me to create a username and type in a password. The problem is it doesn't ask if I already have a username already and only wanting to install the software on this laptop. How do I bypass it?

In addition to having your Primary username name on, you need to create a "wif-fi sub account" aswell.


For example: My username to access (so I can access email and etc) is Charlesh.  Now for my Wi-Fi account I needed to make a subaccount, so I created charleshwifi! So now it will allow me to install the Verizon Wi-Fi application.


I hope that helps!


If you are still having issues past that, I can take care of you if you Private Message me.
